The human head louse, Pediculus capitis DeGeer ( Figure 1 ), infests 10-12 million people each year in the United States. Pediculosis or "lousiness" is one of the most prevalent communicable conditions in this country. Lice are primarily transferred from person to person by direct contact or by several people using the same combs, brushes, hats, costumes, athletic equipment, towels, or bedding. Human head lice are not found on animals or household pets and are not transmitted from pets to humans. Because of children's play activity and close contact, head louse infestations are usually found on children, but can also spread to adults. Follow link for complete article.
